A Slow Start...

So after playing some 'warm up' games to get me into I find myself having perfect starts. My supply doesn't block, my drones in perfect timing. I do different builds to get me into each one. After it goes well in warm up I decide to go straight into my first ladder game.


Oh boy the pressure got to me. I mess up so badly that I lose the first 4 games by simple rushes, I got a bit disheartened to the whole idea to be honest. But I must continue my quest to the top! I ended up winning the 5th game, I got 4 gated by Protoss but this time I scouted more with my Overlords and placed Spine Crawlers. Success! Turns out these bad boys are better than I first thought! I must use them more... 


I ended up using them so much in game 6 and 7 that I didn't actually have any units and got destroyed by Siege Tanks... Excellent.


I must do more research and learn some more techniques...

  1. Would you recommend it to someone who hasn't played Starcraft before?

    Yes I would definitely, if you're into this style of games. There are many different leagues for different levels of play so everyone can enjoy it no matter how competitive you are. I really should make a blog explaining this maybe...

  4. As soon as I saw the title of your blog I lol'd. Congrats on getting into sc2 tho, its a great game. Might I suggest picking an easier race than z4erg tho? perhaps protoss and 4gating every game?

  8. I think it's interesting to follow a gamer who's trying to make a career. OF course I'll be following with pleasure.
